A thorough cleaning regiment must be employed by hospital cleaning and janitorial staff in order to ensure proper microbe and disease remediation for the safety of employees, and most importantly of patients. A hospital or healthcare environment is unique in the respect that it houses people with compromised health, while also housing potentially deadly diseases and microbes in proximity, and often in the same room. It’s for this reason that hospital cleaning procedures and methods must be full-proof and carried out by qualified staff who can ensure satisfactory microbial and disease remediation.Read more “Hospital Cleaning Procedures & Methods: How to Ensure a Spotless Environment of Care”
When it comes to the world of cleaning, there are two distinct service types available: commercial cleaning and residential cleaning. There are a few key differences that make the two cleaning options appropriate for different buildings and cleaning needs.

Cleanroom standards are some of the most stringent to adhere to. A cleanroom must be meticulously cleaned and disinfected depending on the type of research, development or assembly taking place within it. For instance, a clean room used for developing or assembling pharmaceuticals has a wide range of factors that will contribute to its classification, depending on how clean the room needs to be in order for untainted assembly and production to take place.Read more “Cleanroom Classifications: How to Properly Disinfect Each Type”
A school, office or healthcare facility’s fitness center equipment and locker room are some of the dirtiest places on the campus premises, where harmful germs, viruses and parasites love to fester and hide.
The need for a clean and safe office, school or R&D lab is more important than ever, especially when flu and cold season begins to rear its congested head. While some businesses rely on the services offered by independent janitorial services, they often lack standardized cleaning practices, techniques and follow-through that can leave your place of work a hot zone for resilient germs.
The flu is one of the most common and deadly viruses that exists. This year is the first time that the flu is projected to be equally widespread across the United States1. It’s also projected to cause the highest amount of casualties, with 80,000 flu-associated deaths projected by year’s end2. As a result of its widespread and deadly nature, and with flu season approaching, the need to keep commercial buildings, such as office spaces, schools and health care facilities, free of the viruses’ germs is more urgent than ever before.
Flu season is on its way, and that means it’s time to prepare to rigorously clean professional and shared spaces in an effort to combat the spread of the flu. Killing the influenza virus requires a customized approach for different spaces, depending on their common touch points and trafficked areas.
Research and development cleanrooms that operate on a daily basis for pharmaceutical or electronics development organizations, among others, must maintain the sanctity of their cleanroom space with proper, professional and thorough cleaning—nothing less. Avoiding or improperly cleaning the controlled space can result in catastrophic cross contamination, wrongful results, lawsuits or worse.
